Your research sounds solid.

Those double last names are tricky and can come about in a number of ways.

Mary Robinson's husband was John Walker Redmond but his father was Abraham Walker and he seems to have taken the name Redmond on because his mother had no surviving brothers. Mary took on the double last name as did all their children. Except one son married a Walker cousin and they seem to have become Redmond Walkers instead of Walker Redmonds. Maybe he got an inheritance from an uncle or an in-law.

Their daughter Sophia Walker Redmond's married name was Clendinning if you want to check out her will referencing Ruddell Todd.

I'm not related to any of these families that I know of. They interconnect with several lines who married into my extended family. My database has lots of Robinson, Ruddell, and Todd branches in Armagh and just a couple Carrick branches. It's always nice to link them up.

Thank you.

The names are confusing but it makes sense, as in your Walker Redmond analogy, that the idea of inheritance may have been some factor in this.

I don't see the will for Sophia on PRONI, is it available elsewhere?

I appreciate your input to this thread, many thanks.

Hi Kells

I have found the mystery man in the photo, he is not Frederick Robinson but he is Major General Charles George Gordon CB, also known as Gordon of Khartoum, if you follow this link: http://angloboerwarmuseum.com/Boer91jj_jugs_doulton.html and scroll down the page you can find the colour version of the picture. Maybe he is a relation of yours on another line. The uniform he is wearing is Egyptian. I haven't been in contact with you personally for a while, family history being neglected.

Goodness me, how interesting! Well that at least puts a stop to the wonder about which family member is he!

It looks as though from the article that portraits were well distributed so I won't assume a family link.

What a find! Thanks  :)
